What I got out of this interview about How to Get More Clients with Todd Tresidder:

1. Understand Your Target Market

You have to know them BETTER than they know themselves. Wow them by sharing insights into why they are going through what they are, that they didn’t even know existed.

2. Go For Gold

Don’t try to be everything to everyone. Identify your ideal client and what keeps them up at night. Create your service offering around that.

3. Marketing Machine

If you spend too much time on marketing, which you don’t get paid anything for, you’re reducing how much money you make per hour. Create a marketing machine that will filter out your ideal clients, and that will work for you on autopilot.
